Land Registry figures: prices strong but transactions slump

If you live in the UK (primarily Wales or London) then we've got some good and bad news for you. The good news is that, according to the land registry data, your home is probably worth more today than it was in 2016. The bad news is that you'll have a harder time selling it.

  • Even while sales prices increased, the amount of home sales were marketed lower in a year to year comparison.
  • All parts of the UK experienced home sales declines with London being affected most.
